Cryptanalysis is the part of cryptology dedicated to the mathematical analysis of the weaknesses of cryptographic algorithms, the goal being to defeat some of the security properties that the algorithm should fulfill, e.g. decrypting data which has been symmetrically encrypted with substantially less effort than what would be needed to try out all possible keys.
